Investment Protection

You can reuse existing/legacy IP video equipment with the Videomeet service to participate in video conferencing, thereby making the most of investments already done.

Adaptive Video Layering technology

To enhance your experience and to make video conferencing meaningful, Sify's Videomeet service leverages Vidyo's Adaptive Video Layering technology which uses H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC). This technology replaces the video processing intensive MCU of traditional conferencing systems with an intelligent packet routing application called the VidyoRouter. The VidyoRouter connects devices ranging in capability from smartphones and tablets, to laptops and desktops, all the way to room systems and immersive tele-presence, in the same call with each endpoint performing up to its capability, independent of all other endpoints in the conference.

Scalable Video Codec

H.264 SVC is increasingly being accepted in the market as a key standard to enable video conferencing that can dynamically adapt to varying network conditions such as packet loss, fluctuating network bandwidth and network delay. Unlike H.264/AVC which is highly sensitive to network errors, H.264 SVC was designed from the ground up, to perform in lossy real-world network environments. Sify's Videomeet service does not undergo issues such as freezing and audio video loss that plagues traditional videoconferencing, while providing an HD experience for mobile, desktop, room system and immersive telepresence users.

Hi-definition

The service supports all hi-definition formats such as 1080p resolution with 30fps/720p with 60fps video conferencing on all end points provided network bandwidth is available.

Recording

For you to comply to regulations or for record keeping, every conference on the system can be recorded and retrieved.

Flexible sizing and pay-per-use

Sify Videomeet services are flexible to allow your organization to choose either a flat rental plan or a pay-per-use plan, as per your organizations conferencing needs.

Managed Cloud service

Sify Videomeet service is offered as a Hosted Managed service thereby offloading all operational aspects such as maintenance and support from your organisation.

SifyVideomeet service also bundles a network plan for customers to access and conduct video collaboration across multiple offices. The network WAN provided is a private MPLS based VPN thus providing highly secure and reliable access to the video service.
